I have a question regarding the Packet 3 for the K-1 Visa? Does someone knows if you need to send only the checklist signed or we also need to email all the documents listed on the checklist?

We only had to send the confirmation page that we had the documents ready for the interview, but it depends on the embassy. Just took a quick look and it seems the same. They want you to confirm you have everything and then they will send you package 4 (the interview date information).

You just need to email the signed checklist then bring everyting to interview including your medical and a new letter of intent, the I-134+ evidence etc...
